Adjustments to your Camp Registration

What is an Adjustment? A camp adjustment is when there is a change to the weeks that your children will attend camp. It is not a cancellation, just a change in registration dates.

  • A $45 fee will be applied to any changes made less than 30 days before your child’s first day of camp.

To make adjustments to your camp weeks, please sign into your Amilia account. Please note that once you remove your child from a camp, the vacant spot will automatically be filled but the next person on the wait list.

 

Camp Cancellation

What is a Cancellation? A cancellation is when you completely withdraw from the camps that you have already registered for.

  • $100 of your camp deposit is non-refundable.
  • Refunds (minus the $100 deposit) are available for any cancellation made 60 days before your child’s first day of camp.
  • Credit (minus the $100 deposit) is available for any cancellation made 59-30 days before your child’s first day of camp.
  • No refunds or credits are available for cancellations made 30 days or less before your child’s first day of camp.
  • If the cancellation is due to a medical issue, a doctor’s note is required. Please contact Matty, msimonovich@jccottawa.com to cancel.
  • If the full camp payment was made in one installment (paid in full) at registration, please sign into your Amilia account to cancel.
  • If you are paying, or have paid, for your camp in installments, please contact Matty, msimonovich@jccottawa.com to cancel.

All camp adjustments and cancellations are per child and per camp week. 
All transactions are subject to a 3.5% administration fee.


After Camp Care Payment and Refund Policy

Registration for After Camp Care is on a weekly basis. Refunds will not be given for unused days. Drop-ins are not permitted.

When cancelling or adjusting a camp week, where you are also registered for After Camp Care and are therefore cancelling or adjusting your After Camp Care registration, standard cancellation and adjustment fees will apply with no extra charge for the After Camp Care cancellation or adjustment.

There will be no fees for any After Camp Care cancellations or adjustments made on or before May 31, 2024. Refunds will not be available after that date.
